In December 2006 Betsy Paul painted a picture for the company Christmas card, and two clients offered to buy it. So she decided to auction the painting and donate the proceeds to the Cashiers-Glenville Fire Department. Years later, the art benefit is still going strong. Art benefit tickets are $5 each and are available for purchase every month (only 100 tickets sold monthly). There is also the option of purchasing a “season ticket” for $60 which gives you one chance to win on each drawing for the next 12 months. The paintings are on display at Betsy Paul Properties. Come by during office hours (Mon-Sat 9-5) to view and purchase ticket(s). The office is located at 870 Highway 64 West next to the historic Toll House. Or if you prefer you can mail your check, payable to the Cashiers-Glenville Fire Department, to Betsy Paul Properties, P. O. Box 713, Cashiers, NC 28717.
Breathe, move, sweat and connect! Stoked by yogic breathing techniques, the internal heat of the body couples well with the external heat of the room to allow you the opportunity to drop a little deeper into your practice.
Each pose creates an opportunity to transform and grow without sacrificing the integrity of Yoga's mind, body, breath relationship.
Warm Flow Yoga class is taught in a heated room of 80-85 degrees. This is NOT hot yoga which is 90-115 degrees.
This class is suited for level 1, 2 and 3 students. Modifications and enhancements are offered as needed so everyone in the class is able to work at their own level comfortably. This class is not suited for beginners.
